No wifi in your room, extremely noisy all the time. I would recommend staying in an Airbnb for the same price or cheaper. The location, however, is great. close to beach and there are a lot of restaurants around. 25 minute drive from airport ($35 taxi).

I was told there were no bunk rooms and had to get a private which was much more expensive. When I arrived I saw several free bunks. I asked about it and they said they were available and offered me to move, but it was late and I had already gotten stuff in my room. I asked about bus tickets...

I am really sorry that you had a bad experience, but I can't find any booking during the month of January that could be you. So I believe that you were staying in another Hostel in Bavaro... If it was actually in Bavaro Hostel you stayed, I would appreciate if you could contact me on mari@bavarohostel.com, because what you are...

This hostel is under new Swedish expat management. I stayed 2 nights and paid 30 USD per night which is good value. Location is very good close to reataurants, minimarket and beach. Coming with the Bavaro Express Bus from Santo Domingo there is a bus stop just 100 m from the hotel. No breakfast but good self-cooking opportunities. Wifi only...

Thank you for taking time to write us a review! I know about the smell of the water, unfortunately that is something that we have to live with in this area, and at least it is only a smell, it is not dangerous to use for cooking and tooth brushing. I am happy that you enjoyed your trip and I...

I spent a little bit more than 3 weeks in this hostel in Bavaro and I loved it! If you book your own room, you share shower and kitchen with another room. A great way to meet new people :) The rooms are not huge but big enough. I mean, you don't visit Bavaro because you want to spend a...

The staff was really helpful. We received a lot of good tips about where to eat, do shopping, etc. Place is located near to the beach. Rooms are rather small, but if you do not plan to spend much time in the hostel you should be ok with that. The only thing that bothered us was smell/colour of the tap...

The hostel is located near the beach with restaurants and juice stores near by. There are moto taxis waiting outside, but bargain hard. The hostel is 3 floors and the dorm rooms are Spartan. The rooms can get very hot and lots of mosquitos around. If you are not comfortable with the heat, then stay away or get a private...

Stayed at Bavaro Hostel for Four nights. Even though it was low season and sometimes too hot temperaturewise, I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel. The Price was fair, the place was Nice and clean although a bit basic. The staff at Bavaro Hostel were very Nice and helpful. The location is pretty good, 5 min. from the Beach...

I stayed at the Bavaro Hostel in Punta Cana recently. I've stayed in hostels before and so far this is my favorite one. I can't wait to go back.
